Any tips on introducing a bottle? I've been pumping & stashing bm & will continue to bf but I'd like to get her used to a bottle as well so DD & DH can also feed her. I bought a mimijumi bottle last night (I heard its most like mommys breast).

I used Dr Brown's glass bottles. I was nervous at first too. But our little girl took to it just fine. We were told to have some else give the bottle with mommy out of the room. We did that and she sucked the bottle down so fast she threw up! She learned to get the hang of it. Now she doesn't care if I'm in the room or even giving her the bottle. In prep for work, we have her one bottle a day for a week, then 2 the week after, and then 3 bottles the week before I returned (as she'd need to learn to take 3 during the day and transition to breast in the evenings and mornings.

Thank you :) tomorrow I think I'll try to let DH feed her without me in the room. She didn't seem interested in it at all today
